We got to see one of the Raskasta Iskelmää live shows at the sold out Hönö bar in Tampere. Featuring Marko Hietala, Antti Railio and Ville Tuomi on vocals, it’s the perfect summer getaway while waiting for the Raskasta Joulua season. A very fun evening presented by Tuhdimmat Tahdit and Master Events.

We made it to the final show of this year’s Raskastan Joulua tour at the Nokia Arena in Tampere, saved by the band and Master Events from cancellation, and the perfect way to celebrate Christmas and heavy metal music in Finland!

Day 2 of Sauna Open Air was a blast with a great Line Up, including Battle Beast, Avantasia, Doro and Five Finger Death Punch. The festival was organised by RH Entertainment and Master Events.
